Thank-you, little girl at my daughter's school, who told my daughter about her cousin. This little girl's cousin was caught smoking AT THE AGE OF SEVEN! My daughter completely understood why this was a bad idea and why no one should do it. She could even tell me some of the health problems that smoking can cause. Thank-you, Elementary School, for apparently bringing this up in class already, because my daughter knew way more than I gave her credit for.
Thank-you, Mr. DJ on the radio, who was discussing the recent Jamie Lynn Spears pregnancy news. He was joking that he told his daughter that holding hands with a boy would get her pregnant. My daughter turned and looked at me and said, "You can't get pregnant by holding hands with a boy!" I agreed with her and then held my breath for the questions to follow. Thank-you, God, for allowing my child to remain innocent for a while longer, because the questions never came.
Thank-you, Wal-mart, for having your computers go on a fritz yesterday, as 200 people tried to check out. As we all stood in line together, my daughter witnessed patient people, laughing people and kindness. I was so happy to see that no one freaked out on each other or the cashiers.
Thank-you, to my friends and family. For all that you do. For all that you are. For all that you help me be.
